"Geneia is proud to share our clinical and care management expertise with hospitals, health systems and care teams confronting the COVID-19 pandemic," said Heather Lavoie, Geneia president. "At times like this, every person and every organization is asked to step up, to contribute what they can to help. That's why our team has been working double-time to deploy a free, publicly available version of our care management solution as quickly as possible."

Simplifying care management helps patients, nurses and physicians

The magnitude of COVID-19 strongly suggests the patient populations of hospitals and healthcare systems will grow, potentially exponentially in the coming weeks and months. Healthcare organizations need easy-to-use care coordination tools to triage affected patients, guide the right patients to testing and manage their ongoing care.

"We expect our healthcare system and especially physicians and nurses will be stretched to effectively engage and manage the onslaught of patients seeking clinical counsel, testing and care," said Lavoie. "Given the shortage of doctors in some areas and widespread physician and nurse burnout, it is critical they have easy-to-use and implement workflow solutions that help."

How It Works

Theon® Care Management is a targeted care management workflow solution to assess and triage patients calling physician organizations, hospitals and healthcare systems for COVID-19 information, resources and care. The solution guides a healthcare organization's employee to gather pertinent information to route the patient to the appropriate next best action or outcome.
